To define a common test plan for approval of ICs that contain LIN communication transceivers. This document will define the test circuit, the circuit layout and the bus load requirements to validate the IC. The document includes functional and behavioral validation of the physical layer components. The qualification requirements will define pass and fail criteria, test method, test setup and load box/DUT configuration.
Currently each OEM has their own communication transceivers qualification requirement that vary over time. The intent of this standard is to minimize test variation and consolidation of requirements among NA OEMs.
